this morning about what happened last night. family members tell us that 57- year-old dennis wayne dixon was shot in the doorway of his apartment, that is the apartment with the light on the porch and his stepson was tied up and beaten. take a look at this. paramedics rushed him to the hospital. we are told the stepson lived here with him and may soon be released from the hospital later this morning. the details which led up to the shooting are not complete yet. initially police confirmed this was a home invasion but the victims and suspects may have known each other. his mother was told her son pulled up to the apartment and exchanged words with the suspects which is when they tried to force themselves into the apartment. that is when dennis dixon was shot in the doorway. we are even hearing the stepson wasn't the only one in the apartment at the time of the shooting. her mother told us her son was a vendor of sorts and had a booth where he sold clothes and dvds out of. she said she could barely understand the bad news. >> she was crying on the phone but i could not understand nothing b
to use. >> one of the reasons that you might need to point tell is that to the delays are point to be later. this does not have any traffic impact and there is no rush of cars the airline debt using to wait that ramps of there is no reason for them not to go ahead and take their time and get the work done now. these are the perils that are being replaced and just to be cleared this is not affecting the right west 80 or the east the traffic is flowing to the east bay 37 though as they're trying to get onto columbus parkway. that is the extent of the traffic. the west bound traffic in go to redwood, turn around and come back and it will be able to get on the east on columbus there. but as a key to the bridge check, there is no high spots it is looking good and even with the activation of the metering lights we do not have any back up on the approach and the center lanes look good. for the bay bridge and the cemetery ridge drive looks good. no problems here and let us look right to the going rate, not only is there light traffic on the bridge of light traffic through marin county f

federal investigators this morning and joins you now -- and joins us now with this live report. >> reporter: good morning, tori. yes, it's been almost a week since this fireball and explosion and fire here in san bruno. there are still so many questions. the ntsb is out here this morning. we're getting more information about where this investigation is headed. key among the question is how did this start, obviously and why did it burn so long? let's talk about the cause. the ntsb has been asking for anyone to come forward if they smelled gas in the days leading up to the explosion. there have been about 90 e- mails sent to the ntsb. but the ntsb said they only had one person who smelled gas and that was two or three weeks before this happened. if they didn't smell gas, that would be a clue. >> if people smell gas in advance, that suggests a failure, where gas is coming out and people smell it. that's a different kind of failure than a catastrophic failure. that would help us determine the cause of this explosion. that's why that's so crucial to us. >> reporter: there's also the
the second and third can be felt. and then pentothol being used, there is a shortage of the drug in california and others say there is barely enough for one execution, many not for anymore. there should be more available but not until early next year. there is also arguments in the 9th circuit court of appeals at the federal level they are trying to stop the execution still scheduled for right after midnight on wednesday morning. heather ishimaru is up in the courtroom and have much more on this, possibly a decision any minute that is coming up at 5:00 and 6:00,. >>> penalties congresswoman jackie speier took action to try to increase government oversight of natural gas pipelines. she did so in the san bruno neighborhood devastated by an explosion two weeks ago. janelle wang has details on the new bill. >> reporter: representative jackie speier just wrapped up the news conference in the past 45 minutes. she announced a new bill that would strengthen natural gas pipeline regulation. it's called a pipeline safety and community empowerment act. if it passes, it would require remotel
